This pushes Bitcoin's market cap to around $220 billion (above that of Citigroup) as the* market cap of the entire cryptocurrency space is now bigger than JPMorgan*.
While no specific catalyst is clear, we note two headlines that stood out:
-Tokyo Financial Exchange to Begin Planning for BTC Futures-
The Tokyo Financial Exchange, one of Japan’s leading financial exchanges, has announced that they will begin preparations for Bitcoin futures offerings at the beginning of 2018. The company boasts some high value trading partners like JP Morgan Chase and Barclays.
The announcement suggests that the exchange will build a working group to study cryptocurrencies and the potential for futures this January. The working group is the first step toward final action and is generally a strong signal for adoption, since it preceded legislation for approval. According to the CEO Shozo Ohta:
*“Once the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act recognizes cryptocurrencies as financial products, we will list the futures as quickly as possible. To achieve that, we will launch this working group to study various aspects, including Bitcoin’s present status, its outlook, and what form it will take root in Japan’s society.”*
The announcement falls in line with Japan’s previous moves toward adoption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The country was one of the first to recognize Bitcoin as a legal payment method, and has been open to increasing changes. At present, Japan is the world’s largest Bitcoin market, with about half of all Bitcoin trades globally being denominated in yen.
-JPMorgan Switches Tact, Backs Bitcoin as New Gold-
After Jamie Dimon drew a line in the sand for JPMorgan, calling it a ‘fraud,’ the company has once again stepped over that line, praising the digital coin as a ‘new gold.’ Analysts at JPMorgan believe that Bitcoin has changed its shape and that it could soon be joining gold as a reliable, long-term way to store wealth.* Recent growth and recent changes have seen Bitcoin lean more towards being digital gold, and this is where JPMorgan see its value*.
*“Potential to elevate cryptocurrencies to an emerging asset class”*
According to JPMorgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, *the incredible spike in the value of Bitcoin is allowing it to start competing as an asset class;* and seemingly at the same time drop out of the currency race.
There are changes afoot in the Bitcoin market, especially when it comes to making the digital currency easier to invest in. Panigirtzoglou said:
“The prospective launch of Bitcoin futures contracts by established exchanges, in particular, has the potential to add legitimacy and thus increase the appeal of the cryptocurrency market to both retail and institutional investors.”
*However, amid all the exuberance in bitcoin's incessant rise*, RT reports that *another question about the safety of cryptocurrency transactions was raised this Wednesday*.
Clients of a major Las Vegas bitcoin exchange Bittrex say they *can’t withdraw their money and the company doesn’t explain why*. The clients of Bittrex, which processes about $1 billion of cryptocurrency payments per day, are angry about the delays, Business Insider reports. They claim to have verification problems but get close to no feedback from Bittrex about the situation.
The *company admitted to "significant delays" in handling the issues, *but said they affected only "a small percentage of our overall user base."
New identification procedures are being implemented to comply with the US anti-fraud banking regulations.
One of Bittrex users, who asked the media to call him only by his middle name, commented on the problem.
“Bittrex has two levels of verification. Basic Verification, which I completed, but it said it could not find any public record to match what I entered. Then [it] gives you the option to submit what they call Enhanced Verification where you have to submit Gov ID, Passport, Selfie, etc. I, in turn, did this, but that one also failed, saying 'Name Mismatch Error.' To top it off, they do not provide any settings page to correctly make the name change if [there] truly is a name mismatch,” he said.
“The next step is for you to submit a support ticket, which I then completed. My support ticket was opened on November 6 with not a single response from anyone at Bitrrex. This is going on for almost 30 days now. I updated the ticket many times to no avail," he added.
Another user complained that when he made the deposit, no verification was required.
But it seems that is not stopping investors. As Ron Paul explains money arose via market transactions, and precious metals have served as money for thousands of years. Then government, for its own reasons, monopolized the creation of money. It has been a disaster ever since. *Competing currencies, without government intrusion, will clean up this mess. Is Bitcoin a step in the right direction?*
We leave it to Alan Greenspan to sum up the ironic ignorance of the status quo:
*"...you cannot tell me that you can create out of nothing something has a medium orf exchange value..."*

Since the time immemorial, it has been an article of faith of every Muslim that suicide is ‘Haram’ (prohibited) in Islam. There is a well-known Islamic precept that whoever commits suicide will go straight to hell. But the Takfirists (those who declare others as heretics) have invented a new interpretation of Islam in which suicide is glorified as ‘martyrdom’ and suicide bombing is employed as a weapon to cause widespread fear.
Historically, suicide bombing as a weapon of war was invented by the Tamil Tigers during the eighties in their war against the Sri Lankan armed forces. The Tamils are a Hindu ethnic group of northern Sri Lanka who were marginalized by the Buddhist majority and they led a civil war in the country from 1976 until they were defeated by the Sri Lankan armed forces’ Northern Offensive in 2009.
Among the Muslims, suicide bombing as a tactical weapon was first adopted by the Islamic Jihad in the Israel-Palestine conflict during the Second Intifada that lasted from 2000 to 2005. Then the transnational terrorists of al-Qaeda adopted suicide bombing as a weapon of choice in some of their audacious terror attacks in the US and Europe. And after that, all the regional militant groups – including the Taliban in Afghanistan, al-Shabab in Somalia, Boko Haram in Nigeria and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – have also adopted suicide bombing as a tactical weapon in their rebellions against regional adversaries.
The phenomena of militancy and insurgency anywhere in the world has less to do with religious extremism and more with the weak writ of state in remote rural and tribal areas of the Third World’s impoverished countries, which is sometimes further exacerbated by deliberate arming of certain militant groups by regional and global players.
The Afghan jihadists of today, for instance, are a legacy of the Cold War when they were trained and armed by the CIA against the former Soviet Union with the help of Pakistan’s security agencies and the Gulf’s petro-dollars. Similarly, the Islamic State’s militants in Syria and Iraq are a product of Washington’s proxy war in Syria in which Sunni militants were trained and armed in the border regions of Turkey and Jordan to battle the Shi’a-led government in Syria in order to contain the Shi’a resistance comprised of Iran, Syria and their Lebanon-based proxy, Hezbollah, which constituted a threat to Israel’s regional security.
In order to empirically prove the point that militancy anywhere in the world has less to do with the professed ideology or religion of militants and more with geo-political factors, here is a brief list of some of the recent non-Muslim insurgencies around the world:
First, as I have already described, the Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka who invented suicide bombing as a tactic of war were Hindus.
Second, the Naxalite-Maoist insurgency in India’s north-east that has been raging since 1967 and has claimed tens of thousands of lives has been comprised of Hindus.
Third, the insurgency of the FARC rebels in Colombia that lasted from 1964 to 2017 and claimed hundreds of thousands of lives was a conflict among the Christians.
Fourth, the Northern Ireland conflict that lasted from 1968 to 1998 and claimed thousands of casualties was a dispute between the Protestants and the Catholics.
Fifth, Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army that operated in Uganda, South Sudan, Central African Republic and Congo since 1987 were Christians and animists.
Sixth, the Nuer rebellion led by Riek Machar against his former ally President Salva Kiir’s Dinka tribal group since December 2013 in South Sudan which has claimed tens of thousands of lives has been a conflict among the Christians.
Seventh, the Hutu-Tutsi conflict that led to the Rwandan genocide in 1994 and claimed hundreds of thousands of lives was also a conflict among the Christians.
And lastly, all the belligerents of the Second Congo War that lasted from 1998 to 2003 and claimed millions of fatalities were non-Muslims.
Keeping all this empirical evidence in mind, it becomes amply clear that Islam as a religion is just as peaceful or ‘violent’ as Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism; and taking a cursory look at the list, it also becomes obvious that the common denominator among all these disparate insurgencies has not been religion.
Since most of these insurgencies have affected the impoverished and underdeveloped regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America, thus the only legitimate conclusion that can be drawn from this fact is that militarization and weak writ of impoverished, developing states has primarily been responsible for breeding an assortment of militant groups in their remote rural and tribal hinterlands. That’s the only common denominator among these otherwise unrelated list of insurgencies.
The root factors that have mainly been responsible for spawning militancy and terrorism anywhere in the world are not religion or ideology of militants but socio-economics, ethnic diversity, marginalization of disenfranchised ethno-linguistic and ethno-religious groups and the ensuing conflicts; socio-cultural backwardness of the affected regions, and the weak central control of the impoverished developing states over their territory, which is often exacerbated by deliberate training and arming of certain militant groups that were used at some point of time in history as proxies by their regional and global patrons.
After invading and occupying Afghanistan and Iraq and when Washington’s ‘nation-building’ projects failed in those hapless countries, the US policymakers immediately realized that they were facing large-scale and popularly-rooted insurgencies against foreign occupation; consequently, the occupying military altered its CT (counter-terrorism) approach in the favor of a COIN (counter-insurgency) strategy. A COIN strategy is essentially different from a CT approach and it also involves dialogue, negotiations and political settlements, alongside the coercive tactics of law enforcement and military and paramilitary operations on a limited scale.
Finally, excluding large-scale insurgencies, even if we take a cursory look at some individual acts of terrorism, the Virginia Tech shooting in April 2007 that claimed 32 lives was perpetrated by a South Korean Seung-Hui Cho, then a Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Behring Breivik shot dead 77 students on the island of Utoya, Norway, in July 2011, after that, Adam Lanza carried out the Sandy Hook Elementary Schools massacre in December 2012 by killing 27 people including 20 children, and more recently, Stephen Paddock committed one of the worst mass shootings in the US history by killing 58 people in cold blood at the Las Vegas Strip in October.

Updates Shareholders on Latest Developments
Las Vegas, NV, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- mCig, Inc. (OTCMKTS:MCIG), a diversified company servicing the legal cannabis markets, announced today that the company’s CEO has agreed to invest more than $500,000 into OBITX, Inc., formerly known as GigeTech, Inc., a majority owned subsidiary of MCIG. The funds will be used by the company to purchase the first of its kind, state of the art cryptocurrency ATMs. OBITX will utilize the machines to service cannabis companies by helping to build a bridge between the “cash” business of cannabis and mainstream finance through cryptocurrency.
The ATMs are the first of its kind and will support most forms of cryptocurrency including Bitcoin, Etherium, Litecoin and more. They will enable dispensing of cash and transfer of funds, as well as the purchase and selling of cryptocurrency and gift cards from the machine. The machines will feature two screens, one for transactions, and another for advertising which will be integrated with eHESIVE’s proprietary advertising platform, developed by mCIG team. The company has already placed its first order of 125 crypto ATMs with scheduled delivery in January 2018. The technology has been tested over the last few years and will be ready to go upon delivery. It is projected that over 10,000 ATMs will be installed in dispensaries and mainstream locations over the next few years.
“The space we are entering may be new to our shareholders, but it is a new and lucrative sector. Integration with cryptocurrency was planned since the day we acquired our software and technology division. Many tech and finance projects that were developed within the last 8 months will integrate into and transform the experience of technology and transactions in this new company,” stated Paul Rosenberg, CEO of MCIG Inc.
“I am very comfortable in OBITX management to deliver great results, that’s why I decided to help the company and invested my personal funds,” continued Paul Rosenberg.
OBITX will be an exclusive distributor of crypto ATM for the entire cannabis market. Cryptocurrency will not only help solve regulation, banking and payment processing issues currently troubling the marijuana industry, it is already making its way in widespread adoption in other industries as well.
“Let me also update our shareholders on other developments,” continued Paul Rosenberg.
“We are a few days away from finishing our audit of OBITX. We are extremely pleased with the business model of OBITX and as soon as audit is complete, we'll file our Form S-1 with SEC to spin-off OBITX.
Now, let’s talk about MCIG Inc. overall strategy.
Render Payment concluded its ICO on December 4, 2017 and is expected to be registered on an exchange platform in January 2018. MCIG will work with Render Payment as it continues to expand its high risk merchant service cryptocurrency platform.
As we discussed in early press releases, the goal is to be focused on cultivation, extraction and distribution of cannabis/hemp related products. We are waiting for the approval of our license application in California City, that will allow us to manufacture different cannabis products.
We struck a huge deal with Farm On! Foundation, currently run by extraordinary business woman, Tessa Edick, who accepted the position of CEO of NYAcres, Inc., 100% owned subsidiary of MCIG Inc. We will be one of the very few companies to grow HEMP in the New York area.
We are looking for other opportunities to grow cannabis in other states, but, we are very careful how we proceed, since the price tag to some projects are high and we need to find balance to be profitable.
Our construction division was completely restructured. This took place during our second quarter, as management found that the results of the operation could be improved significantly. Construction projects are back on track, however management is now very selective with projects and who to be involved with. We are here to make smart deals and make money. Our next big construction project will be in California, where we will obtain ownership rights as well.
The company as you know, has an interest in 2 public companies. Omni Health (10% owned by MCIG) is making great progress with its FDA medical devices registration of CBD for topical pain analgesic and development of non-prescription CBD analgesic creams and ointments with fast absorption properties. They are making smart moves as a newly restructured biotech company and have an exceptionally strong team. Stony Hill, our partner in VITACBD brand, is a long term investment for the company and continues to also be a profitable venture.
MCIG Inc. has recently updated the look of its website mciggroup.com and will continue to make enhancements and provide updates to shareholders on social media.

Las Vegas, NV, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Renewable Energy and Power, Inc. (OTC: RBNW), a diversified corporation with markets in energy-saving technologies of LED lighting, solar and wind energy, is developing on-line advertisements for its line of LED upgraded custom ceiling panels.
“We believe in our LED lighting products so much that we’re exploring on-line advertising which reaches those customers who already have shown an interest in the product, which makes it among the most cost-effective forms of advertising,” observed company CEO Donald MacIntyre.
One of the advertising programs being considered is to use the music of 13-year-old breakout artist Grace VanderWaal, who recently was recognized by receiving the ‘Rising Star Award’ at the 2017 Billboard Women in Music Awards. Signed by Columbia Records, Renewable Energy and Power is investigating licensing either of Miss VanderWaal's captivating songs “A Better Life” or “The Darkness Keeps Chasing Me,” both from her recently released breakout album “Just the Beginning.”
Miss VanderWaal’s music has already been used in advertisements for Google, Honda Japan, and SC Johnson for its product Windex.
“YouTube and the other on-line venues really require a catchy sound track. As the most interesting young artist to appear in some time, we believe Grace’s music would be perfect for this on-line advertising. We’d like to get Grace and Columbia to agree to change the lyrics of her song ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ to ‘Dancing in the LED Light,’ but we’re not hopeful on that score,” joked Mr. MacIntyre.
The company’s division of LED Lites USA offers some of the lowest pricing available from any source for ceiling panel lighting. The product also is improved by being upgraded with a 4” x 4” junction box that meets U.S. electrical codes, and gives customers the easiest of installations. Additionally, the LED ceiling panels are fitted with safety hooks that keep them in place in any emergency such as hurricanes or earthquakes.
“The difference between LED ceiling panel lighting and traditional fluorescence is so obvious that the challenge is simply to get the consumer to initially consider it. This advertising program will go a long way to doing just that,” said Mr. MacIntyre.
Renewable Energy and Power’s LED products are enjoying increasing interest from those employing the on-bill, no interest loan programs that allow customers to retrofit their home and business facilities with the most up-to-date and efficient lighting at no cost to themselves. Joint ventures of states and power utilities, the programs encourage switching to LED lighting to lower long-terms demands on energy production, resulting in less pollution and need for infrastructure which will greatly benefit the environment.
Renewable Energy and Power, Inc.'s website, www.reappower.com, illustrates the important services and products Renewable Energy and Power, Inc. (REAP) provides to the Green Energy market to make it competitive with fossil fuels by employing proprietary new technologies in combination with existing solar and wind-power electric generation and LED lighting. REAP functions in both domestic and international markets that are in vigorous growth stages with long-term prospects. Federal and state legislation in the United States, including many tax incentives, are driving businesses and consumers to replace older technologies with the new solar and LED alternatives offered by REAP.

BOSTON, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSPi (NASDAQ:CSPI), a provider of advanced security products and security services, as well as IT technology managed services, announced today that it was named a finalist in the “Best New Security Product” category for its ARIA™ Software-Defined Security (SDS) platform. CSPi’s ARIA SDS platform is the only solution on the market that can meet the agile and scalable nature of DevOps processes by automatically securing both containerized and VM deployments through assured source spawning, while protecting the data with high performance, per application encryption. This approach brings balance to the need for rapid application development and the necessity to maintain the consistent application of security policies and data access rights within a traditional IT infrastructure. This award is the strongest recognition to date for a solution that takes a proactive and holistic approach to data and network security.“Our ARIA solution provides the critical functionality needed to fully secure a DevOps environment, without requiring changes to how application developers or InfoSec teams go about their jobs,” said Gary Southwell, General Manager, CSPi Cyber Security Products. “ARIA makes production data and other critical assets impenetrable to breaches – allowing it to span both the public and private cloud, improving latency and response times, independent of server load. In a few easy steps, developers can secure their applications with ARIA agents, and InfoSec teams can then programmatically apply the appropriate security policies to these application instances.”
CSPi’s ARIA SDS platform deploys within the NSX architecture by allowing NSX to access specific traffic flows between any VMS, intra-server or inter-server, to take advantage of security features provided by the ARIA platform. NSX installations leveraging ARIA can experience a ten-fold improvement in application performance by offloading key functions, such as encryption and key management, to a CSPi-provided secure intelligent network adapter. Security policies are bridged beyond NSX domains into containerized or other DevOps worlds in the public as well as private cloud infrastructures.
The CSPi ARIA SDS solution allows:
· Offloading of core-intensive services, like encryption, to an intelligent NIC - up to 50 Gbps line rate
· Breach-proof server applications by leveraging the NIC for key storage and execution
· Visibility and provisioning of security policies across virtual environments
· Integration with NSX – map network flows to SDS Security services
· Ten-fold cost reduction in deploying crypto services by offloading server cores and avoiding server upgrades

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The AGEM Index experienced significant gains for the third month in a row during November 2017. The composite index closed the month at 492.64 points, a gain of 17.30 points or 3.64 percent, when compared to October 2017. The AGEM Index reported a year-over-year increase for the 26th consecutive month and has climbed 184.50 points, or 59.88 percent, since November 2016.
During the latest period, seven of the 12 global gaming equipment manufacturers reported month-to-month increases in stock price. Five manufacturers reported decreases in stock price during the month, with one posting double-digit declines.
The three broader stock market indexes produced exceptional results in October. The S&P 500 reported a month-to-month increase of 2.81 percent to 2,647.58. The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 3.83 percent to 24,272.35, while the NASDAQ increased 2.17 percent during the period to 6,873.97.
Selected positive contributors to the November 2017 AGEM Index included the following:
· International Game Technology PLC (IGT) contributed 12.99 points due to a 16.98 percent increase in stock price to $27.49.

In November, Aristocrat Technologies (ASX:ALL) announced an agreement to acquire Big Fish Games, Inc. from Churchill Downs. From 2014 until the acquisition closing by Aristocrat, Big Fish was Churchill Downs’ social casino. The purchase price is $990 million in cash. The acquisition represents Aristocrat’s second in this space in the second half of 2017. In August, Aristocrat announced the purchase of Plarium, an Israeli social game company, for $500 million, which closed in October.
The Big Fish acquisition comes in the wake of a moderating financial performance. On a year-over-year basis, revenues at Big Fish decreased by $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2017, and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) declined by $10.2 million, largely from an increase in user acquisition expense and overall operating expenses.
The acquisition in question is the latest in a series of high-value transactions in the social gaming space, with previous notable transactions including the $4.4 billion sale of Playtika by Caesars in 2016 to Shanghai Giant Network Technology Company (and other investors) and the $825 million sale of DoubleDown in April 2017 by IGT to an affiliate of DoubleU Games Co., a South Korean company. The Big Fish sale is scheduled for review and potential approval in Q1 2018.
In November, Agilysis released its second quarter results for its fiscal year 2018 (through September 2017). Net revenues fell 7.8 percent year-over-year during this period, decreasing from $32.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 to $30.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2018. Despite the revenue dip, adjusted EBITDA margin increased on a year-over-year basis from 4.0 percent to 7.7 percent. Adjusted EBITDA grew on a year-over-year basis from $1.3 million during the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 to $2.3 million during the second quarter of fiscal year 2018. Gross profit margin grew on a year-over-year basis from 48.6 percent in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 to 51.0 percent in the same period of fiscal year 2018, driven by a $2.03 million year-over-year drop in cost of goods sold.
Everi also released its third quarter results for its fiscal year 2017. On a year-over-year basis, Everi’s quarterly net revenues increased $25.1 million, from $222.2 million to $247.3 million (11.3 percent increase). Adjusted EBITDA grew on a year-over-year basis from $51.6 million to $53.2 million (2.8 percent increase). As a result, the adjusted EBITDA margin declined on a year-over-year basis from 23.2 percent in the third quarter of 2017 to 21.5 percent in the most-recent period. Everi is also seeking to refinance its term loan and senior unsecured notes to reduce interest expenses and extend its debt maturity profile.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Three gambling companies have agreed to end their legal battle over the proposed acquisition of NYX Gaming by Scientific Games. The Las Vegas-based firms hope to join forces and become a leader in the as-yet unapproved U.S. sports betting market. But William Hill, a rival based in London, had threatened to derail the deal by using stock it owns in NYX. On Thursday, the companies said they will end their complicated international litigation, adding that William Hill will now support the deal. The companies anticipate the Supreme Court will legalize sports betting, creating a huge new market in the U.S. The case was heard on Monday, but a decision may take until June.
